Food scene, bars, concerts, event space
There are several fun and tasty bars and restaurants located inside this hotel/event space. My personal favorite is the The Old Hangout on the lower level. Also try finding the hidden bar! Also check their events calendar; they have lots of fun shows and events in the Spanish Ballroom.

This place is a fabulous "build your own salad" (or bowls) place. Very health conscious but tasty! And you can take your salad to-go next door to Beer Star tap house (family friendly) to have a fresh brew.
